Adventurex 2016 London November 19-20th free narrative games conference

Recommended Posts

AdventureX is the UK's only convention dedicated to narrative-driven gaming. Now in its 6th year, AdventureX is a free event bringing together developers & gamers with a passion for interactive storytelling.  The event was formed out of the adventure game community though we've expanded to follow narrative/story games in general.

Encompassing everything from retro pixel-hunts to rich, branching narratives, AdventureX is celebration of creativity, indie development and geek culture.

The event is in it's 6th year, ad will run November 19-20th at Goldsmith's University London (New Cross). If you'd like to speak, exhibit or be on a panel please fill out an application form. We won't start processing applications until the start of October so don't worry too much if it takes you a few days to apply.  Since we're funded by Kickstarter exhibiting itself is free,

Application forms:

If you want to attend as a visitor, just turn up we'll see you then! I know a few fellow Double Fine forum members tend to appear each year so I hope a few of you can drop by again.


We're still finalising our special guests but previous guest speakers include: 

Charles Cecil (Broken Sword, Beneath a Steel Sky)
Dave Gilbert (The Blackwell Series)
Jon Ingold (80 Days, Sorcery!)
Steve Ince (The Witcher, So Blonde)
Mark Estdale (Telltale's Game of Thrones, Deponia)
Dr. Ernest Adams (S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl)


To fund the event we have a Kickstarter, we've actually just hit our goal so the event will run for sure. We're only £26 away from our next stretch goal which is to fund a documentary about the event. We already hit the livestream stretch goal so we should be broadcasting the whole thing as it happens.

I really enjoyed it last year (it didn't hurt that it was held at my uni and so really easy to get to) and so will definitely try to get there this year (will have to travel now but only across London). I've at least backed the kickstarter in case I can't make it I'd still be able to view the live stream.

I seem to recall you mentioning this last year, and my expressing dismay that I couldn't attend - which will probably be the case again this year.

It's November this year :) Finding a venue in London is a mega nightmare.
